January 15, 2011 A snowy day

I’m not sure how much snow that we we got but it is inches. The plow has been through so Bo wouldn’t have much shoveling to do. He loves to shovel. It is also about 1 above. Snow and cold = a Minnesota winter. I am still working on my cashmere jacket. I have 1/4…

Snow again! It is winter, you know. But I woke with a migraine again today. It is because of the incoming snow and a change in my pain meds. I say pain meds but they are just the over the counter stuff. The hospital doctors had me switch from Ibuprofen to aspirin for my morning…

January 8, 2011 – another cold January day in Knife River

Another cold morning on the North Shore of Lake Superior. Yesterday it was so cold that even Emma didn’t want to go out. The wind was what pushed the temperatures down and I can hear the Lake crashing behind me as I write. The cold brought out the customers. Warm wool jumps to knitter’s minds…

It’s a cold Friday! Emma is sleeping in her bed next to the heat register. For a dog that loves to play in the snow, she sure loves the heat register. I just saw the funniest You Tube video And I highly recommend it for a good morning laugh. Yesterday the new Vogue Knitting…

January 5, 2011 And I think that I have it figured out!

I was having some problems posting to the blog so my January 2nd post just got up and I hope that my cute UFO guy makes it to this post. If he is here, all is well. I have been busy catching up. The Christmas presents are still in progress. I am over half done…
